On the road to Stonhenge

On the road to Stonhenge

I forgot this one I took this picture on the night of summer solstice on the way to the stones just found it on the camera slightly edited to enhance poppies ...never edited before not sure if I like doing them this way 😀

Sometimes the camera needs a little help to record what you actually saw. That is one beautiful photo.

I agree with Don, scenery is particularly hard to photograph as it never looks the same in the pic as it does in real life. Using the occasional filter can help show people a better image. It's a cracking photo x

Beautiful, I must get back there again. Trouble is the person who took me last time doesn't want to go again. They didn't feel the connection that I did.

Beautiful photograph, that sky is quite spectacular and the poppies have that slight sort of glow that you only get at dusk, after a lovely sunny day. Really like that.

Bit late for dusk then. Guess you must have created that 'glow' while editing - clever you, I don't think I've seen it photographed successfully before. Carry on messing about, I say!

Yes please do maybe buy some gloss paper for it but try it on normal paper first as gloss can be expensive fingers crossed it works. Xxx

Lovely photo. I remember going there on a school trip many years ago. In those days you could wander round the stones and even touch them. It's all ringed off now isn't it?

Pleurisy is not pleasant takes a while to get over those lungs rubbing together when dry hopefully you will get sorted .I'm copd stage 3 diagnosed jan this year xxx

I was DX in may with moderate ( stage 2). It shocks you when you find out. Had Spirometry last week which they saidwas normal. You seem to be coping really well cconsidering you stage 3. An inspiration to the rest of us Angie. Jan xxx

Thank you I was stupid knew I had it before diagnosis and continued to ignore it .but what's for us isn't going to go by us . I didn't go through the shock phase as already knew it was there .Seems strange but I guess the diagnosis saved me in a way. How weird your spirometer test was normal but ct scan said different are you seeing your GP for clarification on things xxx

Gp said Spiro result was very good. I did ask if Ct scan was correct and he said it was. Go gave me Salmeterol 50mcg 1 puff twice a day. And I have Ventolin as an when. xxx

I hope you get the pain sorted and get things to a reasonable standard where your happy .get on the first pulmonary rehabilitation class in your area it's worth it .where are you from xx

Wow, I think that you are the first one on this site to talk about "diet-related". When I developed asthma in my 50's I was so confused because I've never smoked and always lived rural (fresh air) but after going on a VERY strict diet, I pinpointed an allergy to sulfites. And found out that they are in nearly everything in one form or another.

I keep an inhaler handy, but mostly only cook my own food. Restaurants are notorious for using the preservatives that trigger my asthma. People think that I'm a "picky" eater, and I really hate to be one of those people people that go into health details. LOL

Anyway, this site got me through some tough times while on all those medications.

All the best to you, I only logged in because I was curious about your "Stonehenge" post. Hardly anything in the world fascinates as that does!

Hopefully you've figured yours out too.

Sincerely,

Gail, from Tennessee, USA
